Re: testing or stable

True that. When you run unstable or testing it's best to take great care when updating or installing anything, as in sid installing something can trigger a shitstorm depending on what was uploaded that day ... stable only for me these days.

Then just put "testing" instead of "jessie" into your sources.list and
you will stay on the testing branch forever.

But be prepared, once the floodgates from Unstable to Testing have been
opened there will be a tsunami of new packages rushing in form Unstable
so the ride may be a bit rough during the first weeks of the new
development cyble.
